Through the grapevine we were contacted and I agreed to give Snuggles a try at our ranch, working cattle over 40,000 acres of Central Coast California rugged chaparral. Tough job, but the alternative did not look good for Mr. Snookum . . .
After tearful goodbyes from his young owner, we loaded Snuggie into the front seat of our Chevy pickup and he rode the whole way back to the ranch in my lap. All 60 lbs of him, with his long gangly legs and his hush puppy eyes staring me in the face. He knew I was his new partner, and the bond between us would become stronger than I ever imagined.
Once back at the ranch I introduced Snugs to my beloved red-tri Australian shepherd, Rusty. Little did I know at the time that the three of us would become a team that could stop the wildest of cows and move the meanest of bulls!
This is just the prelude to so many adventures that Snugs and I shared together. Be sure and check back as I will be sharing many of them with you.
Until then, Happy Tails!
